PISCATAWAY, NJ — As the Piscataway School District continues to get ready for students to return to in-person instruction on Monday, officials said teachers won't have office hours this Friday in order for them to do final safety prep. However, students will be able to email them with any questions. 

Superintendent Dr. Frank Ranelli made the announcement in a letter to families on Tuesday, explaining:

“We are excited to welcome back Hybrid Plan students into our schools on Monday, March 1. Our buildings are ready with all necessary protocols in place, and our staff is ready to assist students with new guidelines and safety practices.

We are canceling office hours for this Friday, February 26, and allowing our teachers to use this time for a final safety preparation for students’ return on Monday. Students may continue to email teachers with any questions they may have. 

Grab and Go lunches will be provided for all students in school, but students are also welcome to bring their own lunches. Grab and Go breakfast will be provided for students who arrive early. Meal Pick-Up for all students will continue on Mondays and Thursdays at our normal times and locations. 

While parents are always welcome to call their building principal or my office with any questions, in addition to school specific plans provided by building principals, a district Hybrid/Remote Learning page can be found under the Parent Tab on our district website, which outlines our plan in great detail, and offers a comprehensive Q&A. We also created a Return to School Infographic, offering lots of specifics at a glance. Another helpful document outlines When Should Students Quarantine, should that need arise. And we created a March Calendar for Hybrid Students

We will continue to monitor all health data to ensure the health and safety of our students and staff for our return to school. And please remember, all families have the option to change their learning plan to the Hybrid Plan or the All Remote Plan at any time, and we will accommodate that change as quickly as possible. 

Looking forward to Monday.”
